I want to make this entire post about Gord Miller taking on Barstool, but I suppose there are other things I can discuss from this past week in hockey, too. If I have to. So we’ll get to Gord shortly. First – let’s take a look at what else happened around the hockey world this week, though it won’t be anywhere near as fun!
Leafs Lads
Remember Saturday’s Leafs game against the Jets? It sucked, and was awful. But at the end of the game when the Leafs took a ridiculous penalty, coach Sheldon Keefe went off! We had not yet seen Keefe unleashed, but now we have. I am weirdly good at reading lips, so below I translate exactly what it was Sheldon yelled that got him an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty:

Graham went on to officiate the following Leafs game, too, and Twitter had a lot of fun with it:
Anyways. The Leafs are in a slump, it sucks, but LOOK AT @MORGAN RIELLY, TESSA VIRTUE, AND THEIR PUPPY:
Kyle Dubas had media availability yesterday where he stoked the rumour flames:

And of course, in VERY EXCITING NEWS, @Jack Campbell is off LTIR, and the Leafs made some roster moves that could signal @Wayne Simmonds is on his way back, as well:
Who’s excited??

Sad News
Unfortunately we end today’s column with some tragic news:
At times we can almost forget that these incredible athletes are someone’s child, sibling, cousin, parent, friend. This is an absolutely devastating loss and our thoughts and deepest condolences are with Timur’s loved ones and teammates.
 
 
That’s all for this week, folks! See you next Wednesday, when I will be recovering from my second dose of the COVID Vacine!
